    broken-Toybox (Il y a 6 jours) #65386754Thanks for your comment. :3
    The sticker... well, the instruction sheet makes it look like you're given a choice, but I'm with you... they were probably just lazy (as if the base wasn't bad enough).
    It's not like that kind of seam of the hair is anything uncommon, pretty sure all of my figures have that to some degree, but the jug bothers me too (mostly because you won't find a display angle where the seam is invisible...).
    That base is just... not sure, instead of making that piece of garbage they should've just left it imo....
    Its like as bad as Aquamarine's bases. I guess the base, at least you can custom make something cool but not everyone is gonna do that. And should have to really with the price for the shutens. Which I guess the the hair seam bothers me? Theres better ways to hide it or at least minimize the appearance.

    bambipie (Il y a 6 jours) #65385717Huh. MF made some weird choices here that I had not noticed before. Im shocked at a few things. The sticker for the sake seems like a corner cutting choice? Why not just make it an acrylic or resin piece... The massive seam line on the sake jug and top of the hair is also pretty surprising. And that base??? Really?? The couldn't even be assed to put a logo or something
    The paint work is at least really clean. Thanks for this thorough review.

    CaptainZ (Il y a 6 jours) #65385212I'm glad they didn't just use her saint graph art for one. I like the pose a lot on her but that base is gross. The only other issue with her is that she's really oversized, which is being to be rough if you want to display her with other Fate characters.
    Is it just me or is MF really starting to lose it on the "fit and finish" on their scales now?
    Yeah, a lot of times that just looks awkward in figure form (another thing that bothers me about the Ques Q scale). The base is just pitiful, like it'd be so much effort to at least print a floral pattern on it or something (honestly, this looks like a prize figure's base).
    Her being oversized bothers me too as I have certain plans for my display and order some figures accordingly. I display her with Prinz Eugen, since that was my plan all along but them not being a good fit is annoying (and it's not like Koto has troubles like being on the lower end of any given scale...).
    It's not just you, I had the same issue with ITEM #603996 where GSC's website doesn't even tell you the correct height (and I'm pretty sure they changed the scale somewhere in between because other shops list her as 1/7). Ironically, ITEM #549405 is a bit too small for a 1/7 scale (it's not as bad as Shuten Douji or Jalter though). Not sure what I'm supposed to expect for ITEM #726934 at this point...

    purinbun (Il y a 6 jours) #65356413Thanks for the review~
    Your photos are much better than those from MF twitter. yeesh
    I had Shuten on my wishlist until they changed the sculpt and removed the accessories (granted, keeping them would make her price higher).
    I won’t be getting her but I love how nice her face, horns and sleeves look in the final product Voir le spoilerCacher le spoilerand her butt of course ( ✧≖ ͜ʖ≖). The base, kinda awkward legs, and that sake sticker throw me off too much, sadly. The base could look nicer with some cherry blossom petals like in her ingame art? Since the black colour matches the background there. All in all, it’s good you can display her without that bland, round eater of space. ಠ_ಠ
    MF is very inconsistent in their 1/7 fgo “line”, from various bases (why can’t all of them have bases like Summer Artoria, Fran, and Tama Cat have?) to uneven scaling. Shuten definitely looks bigger than my Tama CatThe latter could also be because of the original illustration proportions and character’s height but wish they kept a semblance of uniformity with their fgo ladies, at least with bases.
    Also uh
    Voir le spoilerCacher le spoilerThere’s like a ton of your messages to reply to but this year ended up being a rollercoaster of a lot of things but can happily say I now can take a break and relax; so hopefully I get to chat more, even though I go back to uni in October and maybe/hopefully to work later this month/next month orz
    Thanks for the comment, good to see you back~
    Thank you! :3 I still wonder what they were thinking posting those though, that’s very bad advertisement imo.
    In all honesty, for that price they should’ve kept the accessories if only to make up for that disgrace of a base.
    The figure itself turned out very nicely, I wonder how those will look on the Ques Q one in comparison.^^ That would be a lovely idea and very fitting, one of my initial thoughts was that they could’ve continued the flowery theme from the box with some gold decorations (or make at least something similar to the base of ITEM #394712). Yet looking at the base, basically anything would be better, even and ugly cushion like item/740168&rsq.... \|  ̄ヘ ̄|/
    I noticed that with their Jalter as well, on top of GSC’s shop and all other shops listing her with different scales (my guess is that GSC changed it midway during the PO period), they didn’t even give the correct height for her (only one of the mini rants in my review of her….). As for the bases…. Well, they’re different styles, but still, they put some effort in for the summer servants but not for the rest?
    Voir le spoilerCacher le spoiler Don’t worry about it, I’m working a lot right now and it’s not like I’m in any particular hurry either (recently I took more than 2 months answering a pm…so….). Plus, when you take a break you should actually take your break and not stress yourself too much over stuff like this (though I have trouble with that too). As always I’m happy about any reply, so whenever you feel like it~♡

    victorviper (Il y a 6 jours) #65356213When I saw this batch of pictures go up the other day, I was hoping you'd review this figure.
    I'm not a huge Fate fan, but I do like the design of this character, and you pointed out some features to which I hadn't really paid much attention, like the Oni kneecaps.
    I didn't order this figure, but now I might have to keep an eye out for a preowned one. It's a little weird that they used an adhesive part for the sake as opposed to making the saucer+sake a single piece, and I wonder if the adhesive will hold up long-term.
    As always, very interesting review.
    Thank you so much! :3
    Well, if I upload a batch like this within a folder named after the character I've already got the review written. x3
    I sometimes envy people who aren't as deep into Fate (or not at all), since it sometimes feels like a hell without escape (for the wallet mostly), even if you focus on your favorites. She sure has some neat features, but I don#t like how they reduced the decorative parts compared to the initial prototype (that and the disgrace of a base...).
    I hope you find her cheaper then retail, while I like her I don't think her price is entirely justified. About the adhesive... well, only time will tell, but I wonder why they did it like that. ITEM #740168 had both in one piece but the liquid was barely recognizable as such as it was basically just a thick layer of top coat, but I think MF would've handled that better...
